It would appear Aronian had seen here.

Aronian played 35.Bf4. I'm looking 34.Bf8+ which looks good. Clearing the file with tempo allowing Re8 or Re7+ if Black plays Kf7. Worth a look OTB...time allowing.

  Sally Simpson: Hi Howard.

Yeah, Aronian played 35.Bf4 I meant 35.Bf8+ instead looks good.

35.Bf4 is very subtle. I'll give Aronian the nod in his choice, he must have seen 35.Bf8+. I'm missing something?
